Integrating Magento with an ERP System
Today, online retailers can integrate enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems with their Magento website to accommodate growth and streamline business processes.
ERP business management software helps companies manage and unify all aspects of the business including inventory, distribution, product planning, shipping, human capital management, sales, and marketing. It is impractical to manually enter complex data across various platforms. Integrating an ERP with a Magento-powered e-commerce website will help you seamlessly and efficiently track your business operations, including online and offline sales.
Benefits for Small- to Mid-Sized Businesses
Integrating to an ERP can improve the scalability of your business, increase business efficiencies, save time and labor, and reduce human error. ERP platforms are comprehensive systems. They essentially become the backbone from which your company monitors and relays important business and manufacturing data and activities along the supply chain. The right ERP, properly integrated with Magento, helps your business run leaner, collaborate more effectively, and increase profitability. Benefits to business owners include:
- Better planning processes and scheduling
- Streamlined processes and less downtime
- Expedited shipping and delivery
- Improved efficiency with communication and data collection
- Centralized, up-to-date, consistent data
- Improved reporting capabilities
- Improved security
